The road to WrestleMania has officially begun and the 2019 edition of the Royal Rumble is over. The show had its highs and its underwhelming moments.
While WWE managed to surprise their audience with a few matches, the ending to the main show may have left some people craving for more. While it was obvious that the number 30 entrant in the men's Royal Rumble would not be R Truth as promised, people definitely expected a more inspiring choice than Nia Jax. But the WWE Universe was left happy as Jax got eliminated after a sequence of successive finishing moves from Dolph Ziggler, Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton.
Here are the results from the event held at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.
